Clet in Venice

It is obviously not the real Venice, not many traffic signs for Clet Abraham there, but our Venezia quarter. The Breton artist was present at an exhibition in his honor and left all around some of his new creations.

VP, while I'm no fan of most graffiti, I love this guy's work. He has creativity, a great sense of humor and the absurd.

P.S.: have you read his father's book about Armen lighthouse?

I like these too.
So are all the other artistic signs sold??

It looks like Clet enjoyed Livorno's idea of an exhibition for his sign.
I love the one of the sculptor.

BTW, while googling that lighthouse Ciel mentioned, I came upon
